The St John Difference

Unlike commercial operators, our volunteers work for St John because they are passionate about the community and helping people. All our volunteers are trained in First Aid including using a defibrillator in case of a medical emergency.

Optional Companion Service

As part of our transport service we also offer the option of a companion service at $35 per hour. This ideal for those wanting further assistance with carrying shopping, medical appointments, attendance to events and other situations requiring a companion.
